Forest Dream Schools Matinee
25th October 2023 at Midlands Arts Centre
Suitable for age 7+
This work is loosely based on the true story of ‘The forest man of India’ who devoted his life to the cause of reviving his beloved land- the Majuli islands in the mighty and sometimes ferocious Brahmaputra river. This intergenerational dance show explores his beautiful relationship with the Goddess of forests – ‘Aranyani’ whose very existence is now under threat. Weaving in Carnatic music with western soundscapes, the production is a stylistic blend of Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi (both South Indian classical dance styles) and contemporary dance.
£6.50 + £1.50 ticket fee, with 1 free staff ticket per 10 student tickets.
